Upgrading a fully patched 6.5 GroupWise system to 7.0 will fail.
I set up a test environment and upgraded a fully patched GroupWise 6.5.6 up2 system to 7.0 using the original 7.0 install CD. During the upgrade the installer barked back at me about some of the files in my GroupWise system were newer then the the files being installed.
Install from the latest service pack. I downloaded the latest service pack, 7.0.2hp1a, and ran the upgrade from there. During the upgrade it needs access to the original 7.0 GroupWise installation CD to copy some of the files for the install and the SDD. The rest of the upgrade is just like following the documentation for upgrading to 7.0.
